CHOICES Counseling

The Somers Senior Center offers CHOICES counseling. CHOICES stands for Connecticut’s program for Health insurance assistance, Outreach, Information & Referral, Counseling and Eligibility Screening. Free and objective information, counseling and assistance is available to older adults and persons with disabilities enabling them to understand and exercise their rights, access and receive benefits to which they are entitled, and make more informed decisions about quality of life issues. CHOICES is also an excellent Medicare resource for individuals who are “New to Medicare”, for example, just turning 65 years old or eligible for Medicare because of a qualifying illness or disability. Trained CHOICES staff can help consumers navigate life’s stages while reducing the stress and confusion. Counselors do not sell insurance.

The program is available to residents of Somers who are considered homebound for a fee of $4.00 per hot meal and $3.00 per cold meal. Financial aid is available to those who qualify.
